  1. Water movement (pumps & wavemakers)
    I'm looking at getting the taam rio 17 for my new 120g peninsula tank, but I'm not confident that it will have enough flow. The distance between the sump tank and the return will be roughly 4 feet, so it looks like about 840gph. Should I opt for the 20 instead and get roughly 990gph? Or is...

    Hi, The pump just failed yesterday, it's almost exactly one year old. It's used for the intake into the skimmer (Turbofloater 1000). I'm wondering if there's another brand of pump out there someone can recommend. I saw a site where the rio got horrible reviews from customers. Meanwhile, I'm...
